My latest discoveries!

Well I’ve been thinking the whole weekend how I have accidentally skipped (again) the MARIA’S MUSICAL FRIDAY, and how I hate doing that section a day that section a day that is not Friday, but this week I had a really awesome song that I wanted to share with you guys so I was in a bit of a conflict.

I was this afternoon with my Nathan Fowkes background class and showed us an amazing artist and I felt the need of showing someone, which I haven’t. So I’ve decide to write today about those things that have come across me this week and that I have found really inspiring or whatever, so grab on and lets start!

Society6

The other day, a woman asked me on my FB Page, where she could buy prints of my artwork, and since I have never thought of the (real) possibility of someone wanting to do that I wasn’t really prepared. So! I remembered Society6, I knew they did this kind of stuff (I mean print your artwork so people can buy it) and immediately went over and created an account. My surprise came when I saw that not only did they printed your art on canvas or similar, they also sid the typical t-shirts, mugs…BUT! the also put your art on rugs, mobile cases, pillows, bed cover, SHOWERS CURTAINS!!!! Who would have ever thought my art could possibly be turn in to all those stuff! SHOWER CURTAINS people!!! I’ve always hated those stuff, but I would definitely buy now with my art on it!

Leggings and shower curtains?? Two things I would have never imagined…

As they say in Society6:

“Every puchase pays and artist”

So: MY SHOP

Thnaks!

We love Disney album

Next thing! The We love Disney CD (I haven’t made any investigations about the subject, what I say I what I’ve deduced by what I see) that it seems to be an album released last year with classic (and not so classic) Disney songs sang by artist such as Jason Derulo, Ariana Grande, Tori Kelly… the are quite good versions (some of them are so similar to the originals that wouldn’t deserve to be called versions, but they are all nicely sung).
My personal favourite? Never had a friend like me, by NE-YO.

It seems that Youtube artist have done the same (I actually came across this one first) I don’t really like them as much, but there is one I totally love and find the most original of all, and it’s Tessa Violet’s (yes, here she is again) I wanna be like you.

Mika French singing

I really love Mika, I love how he sings, his elegance, his lyrics, his face, and everything, but I had no idea that he had songs in French! So this week I’ve come across Boum boum boum…and it has totally been the song of the week, please enjoy (and the video is quite interesting too)

And another one 😉

Value studies

In my Nathan Fowkes class from today, the assignment was to grab 12 images from films, other art pieces, pictures… and bring them down to 3 light values (values can vary from image to image), when he has sent the assignment it didn’t sound very fun, BUT! I have totally loved them and have found them terribly useful, to understand certain things when creating your art (I’m telling you, the Schoolism one year subscription is a good place to spend your money in).
I’m totally going to keep doing this type of exercices, they don’t take me long and I hace ease with light simplification, so here I leave you a little selection of what I made today!

Well I’m tired, it’s late and it’s been a very productive day, I also have my butt sunburned and I have to shower, so you know what comes now…
Until next post! (or not)

Work hard!…In a real direction

Hey People! (and welcome to me muffin friend who I didn’t know read this (yay another woman to the ranks!)) I have a question for all of you:
How do you keep reading this pile of mumbling of continuous crying and constant deception? I really admire (and thank) you.
Well it has reached my eyes that some of my dearest readers where left quite worried because of my las post and I came to assure you people! I am recovered (now you might think I live on and emotional roller coaster, that changes really fast, well I have been like that but I think that I’m settling down, nothing like confronting and embracing reality) (you might still think that parting from my last week state I couldn’t possibly be recovered I must tell you I’m emotionally easily recovered, really easy).

It also helps that spring is coming, I’m also a summer lover, so I can go to the beach, my tan has started going on, I might not be going to Annecy but instead I’m going to the Canary Islands with my best friend, I’m goin to publish in a fanzine… so we might say things are starting to come out.
So in this new “stage” I bring out all my skills and I design patterns, I sew custom prom and wedding dresses, I’m not afraid of freelancing and I’ve opened a Society6 shop! (This is probably the best page on all the internet! YOU CAN GET SHOWER CURTAINS WITH MY DESIGNS ON THEM) (ISN’T THAT AMAZING?????) (Even I would buy them, despite I hate shower curtains))

The last post was so depressing (But true) and I remember writing in in a “hangover” mode so I’m not really sure what I wrote and I’ve been willing to delete it, but I’ve been to busy doing more interesting things, so when I finish this one I’m going to modify it, because they are some things I really don’t need know running around the internet, and as Edna Mode would say: “I try to not look in to the past, it distracts me from the future”. And some of those things kinda distract me so I don’t want them there, if you read it, yay you! if not, sorry you are late! jajajajaj
So know I go back to work! Thanks for being there and you know!
Until next post! (or not)

PS: Remember how last post I complained because of the fact that that I was stuck in 99 followers on FB? I GOT TO THE 100! If it has been one of you thanks! And if not, you can keep help me rising that number here!
